From the Jackalope's Den









As a means to sharpen my pen and my wits, in the service of my magnum opus, Autobiography of a Jackalope, I began reviewing some of my favorite books, CDs, and microscope equipment at an online bookstore with whom I no longer have any association. The reviews here are arranged from earliest to latest, with those that I consider to be the most informative as well as the most entertaining indicated by the presence of Fuseli's Three Witches, since my weird was apparently upon me as I wrote them. I hope that you enjoy reading them as much as I did writing them!
